So perhaps Hillary's nomination isn't quite as guaranteed as previously thought. I distinctly remember Hillary seeming like a sure bet for 2008 as well until this largely unknown senator from Illinois named Barack Obama soared past her and grabbed the nomination out from under her, ultimately winning the presidency. Here we are eight years later...this time, Bernie is surging in the polls beneath Hillary. He's shattered the record for largest attendance at any 2016 candidate's event so far, and his message seems to resound well with the average voter in the Democratic Party. He seems to be mobilizing people who gave up on the political process. Personally, as one who leans a bit closer to Bernie's views than Hillary's, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if Hillary winds up blowing this campaign, too. She has a lot of vulnerability in letting the press write the narrative of her campaign and the pseudo-scandals over emails and Benghazi. Her message effectively strikes me as "I'm running for President!" while Bernie has a clear-cut and consistent set of views for people to research. So how long do we expect Bernie's surge to continue? Will it topple Hillary for America, or will it die out before that point? And if he does get the nomination—how is he going to stack up against whoever wins out of the Republican clown car of a primary?
